Overview
On February 17, 1894, the Diesel engine was operated successfully for the first time. Since then it has been a prime mover for civilization, and today much of the world depends on it as a source of power. Nowhere, perhaps, is it in more widespread use than in America, where the word "diesel" is a part of our language.
"Rudolf Diesel: Pioneer of the Age of Power" is the first English-language publication of Rudolph Diesel's biography. Authors W. Robert Nitske and Charles Morrow Wilson offer a warm and moving account of Diesel from the time of his birth in Paris in 1858 to his mysterious death in 1913. They present Diesel as he was--a man who lived, worked, and invented so far ahead of his time that the world is only now beginning to catch up to him.
